Police say the driver of the pickup suffered minor injuries and was treated and released at the scene.

There were four people inside the Kia aged 25, 47, 69 and 71, police said. The 71-yearold man inside the vehicle was taken to a hospital, where he later died. Two of the other people inside the SUV were also taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
